  • A return to form for the uniquely talented Faith No More which turned out to be their last record before breaking up. Although not reaching the dizzy heights of 1992?s ?Angel Dust?, there are a fair share of classic Faith No More tracks on offer. Opener ?Collision? sets the mood for the album with its unpredictable and jerking metal. Second track ?Strip Search? goes into a completely different direction to confuse the listener even more with its space-age landscape. The album?s greatest strength is that the songs are so diverse and compelling you never know what to expect, something that many US alternative bands should do more often. ?Last Cup Of Sorrow? continues this trend with what sounds like a cowbell as it?s main hook line. At times the album can be frustrating, witness ?Home Sick Home? which goes nowhere and ?She Love?s Me Not? sticking out like a sore thumb. The production sounds flat and uninspiring at times but the quality of the songs shine through, resulting in the most consistent and enjoyable album Faith No More have released in years. Faith No More still prove to be one of the most influential and genius bands of the last 10 years.
